Hola, hola preciosa... saluda la dama! una buena composición,... me gusta... Me he reido de mi misma por una evocación.. Recuerdo que mis padres siempre me explicaban que de pequeña me perseguia una tropa de ocas por el campo... me pellizcaron el trasero...! y me rompieron el vestido que llevaba puesto. Yo no recuerdo nada pero parece que fue un espectáculo. Según parece las ocas eran más grandes que yo... Una anécdota de mi infancia... Gracias por la evocación... un buen regalo recordar a mis padres antes de acostarme... Un beso, Adela

18 May 2012 10:14pm

@Adela Fonts: Gracias por tu comentario Adela y que pases un buen fin de semana !!!
